Study Spaces in Wilson Library

General Study Space

All six floors of Wilson Library have chairs and tables for studying. Outlets and wireless Internet access are available throughout the building. Some spots are remote and may be relatively quiet, but there are no guarantees of quiet space unless you're in the Deep Quiet study room (301B).

Deep Quiet Study Room

The Deep Quiet room is 301B. There's no talking or typing on any kind of device allowed.

Group Study Rooms

There are several group study rooms on the first, second, third and fourth floors of the library. 201A and 301A are big multi-group rooms and are first come, first served. 107, 111, 112, 113, 207, 209, 308, and 309 are small group study spaces which may be reserved via our online reservation system by U of M students, faculty and staff.

Coffee Shop

All of the tables in the coffee shop area have outlets near them and wireless reception is the best in the building. This is a fine location for meeting with group members, but it can get loud when it's busy.

Basement Alcove

On the basement level across from the coffee shop, there are tables, chairs and whiteboard for group study. You can also find the From Our Collections and Basement Alcove book displays here.

History Day Study Area

The History Day Study Area is on the basement level. When not in use by History Day Students, it's open to all. There are numerous tables for small group work as well as wireless and outlet access.

SMART Learning Commons

The SMART Learning Commons is a space to collaborate and use technology equipped with computers and group study tables. It is temporarily located on the 4th floor of Wilson Library.

Study Carrels

There are a limited number of study carrels available for faculty and graduate students.

Nearby Study Space

Just outside Wilson on the basement level is another study space available to students.
